I made this card with the stamp set Varied Vases, which commemorates Mary Fish’s Million Dollars sales!  And I have to say that it is the best ever two step stamp set.  The pieces line up perfectly!  I am in love.  As if that isn’t enough….there is a matching punch.  Woohoo!!  I love punches.  The card is a asymmetrical in its layout, but I think it works.

The background DSP is a super new one for the New Annual Catalog.  As is the stamp set and punch for that matter.  This is definitely a perk of being a demonstrator.  We get to order and play with new catalog products ahead of everyone else.  Anyway, back to the DSP.  It is Tranquil Textures DSP and is part of a Suite.  (Note:  It is not listed in the supply list.  Apparently it has not been added to the resource I use for my links. ) All I ordered to start with was the paper because I thought it was beautiful.  And trust me…..it is beautiful.

I know the Powder Pink layers are unexpected but I was looking for something to tie in with the flowers and vase choices I chose.  I am thrilled with how well it pairs together.  I love the unexpected fit.  I used a variety of colors and instead of listing them a couple of times, you can see it all in the supply list at the bottom of the page.

Other than deciding on the multiple colors, this was an easy card to put together.  Now I want to do another with more of a monochromatic look.

Thank you for checking in today.  I hope you liked this card and will return on Monday to see what I have for you.  Please remember that the Retiring Items are While Supplies Last on the ink, paper, DSP, etc.  So don’t wait if you have a color that you simply love.

Another Paper Pumpkin Special:  The March PP was so popular due to the special gift that it sold out.  So Stampin’ Up! has offered a great deal to replace that.  New Subscribers who sign up before April 10, will receive April and May for half price.  So 2 months for the price of 1.  A great deal.  Use my link HERE, and enter the code: SAVEFIFTY0418


It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
